Welcome to the School of Art website. I hope you will find yourself returning often to learn more about the School and our various events and activities—from the annual School-wide charrette every January to the lecture series offered by visiting artists, designers and scholars; from the professional exhibitions in The Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture and The UT Downtown Gallery to the calendar of undergraduate and graduate student exhibitions that change weekly throughout the year at Gallery 1010; from news of the latest accomplishments of our faculty and students to the inventory of equipment available for student check-out from the School of Art Media Pool.

US News & World Report currently ranks the School of Art at the University of Tennessee as tied at 17th among art programs at public universities across the country. Our graduate program in Printmaking is now ranked 3rd nationally, from a total of some 200 programs. These rankings are significant, but we are especially proud of the many accomplishments of our faculty, our alumni, and our students.

If you are close at hand, please make a point of coming to our public events to learn more about us. If you are further afield, visit us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
